Re: Duplex steel

I thought duplex 2205 was much more expensive than traditional steel w/copper flues.

What about the weight issue with it. I remember reading that boilers built with 2205 are built with thinner material due to its reduced heat transfer. but this would create a lower amount of weight on the drivers.

Re: Model Steam Pressure Gauges

Duplex gauges would be awesome. Didn't someone likes Coles make very very small gauges years back that were a good fit for 1.5 scale in cab air gauges? I think you would find a lot of customers wanting air gauges even if just your normal size or slightly smaller if you also offered the 100psi range....

Re: 90-Ton 2-8-2 Build, 1.5"/ft. Scale, 7.5" Gauge

Russ have you talked to Eccentric Engineer, Brian Keim or Mike Venezia to see if they might be interested? I feel like these sanders would fit well into any of their part catalogs.
